It bloomed this morning! Just a few days after I hand dug the snow off the box! AWESOME! My first flower of 2010. We still have a couple of small snow piles on the grass and I know there will be more snow so I'm only temporarily excited.

Not to start a fight or anything (I wear Army Boots, so it is a complement if I proclaim your mothers footwear to be government issue) ....those don't bloom, they jump up!

Deb....still correcting paper and tripping on her own keyboard….and impressed with your violas

I think they are listed as viola's at the nursery. They are like a miniature pansy. You can almost call them a vegetable because they are one of the many edible flowers that we toss into salad in the west. I've read that they can be sugared as a pretty cake decoration, but the techniques I have read involve dipping them in egg white to glue the sugar on. I'm sure that is safe in this day and age but it still gives me the heeby jeebies.

They are SO cute McK. I think you have posted the first crop of 2010! Now go make a salad and it will be official! (Then again, you can always float them in a cup of wine)

Oh! I couldn't dare pick it. It's the only one. I'll wait 'till there's more. Then I think I'll try to sugar it.

Thanks for the input It's Not a Veggie, but LOOK: Icon_cool

P.S. I'm a Margaret, too. the M in my "moniker" is for Margaret although I was always called Claire. Hope it's sunny where you are.

Post  LaFee on 3/13/2010, 12:14 pm

For making sugared flowers, three ideas:

Look in the baking aisle for something called "Just Whites" -- it's powdered egg white, so it's pasteurized, and you just mix it with water.

You can also look in egg area for egg whites in a carton (like Egg Beaters) -- those have been pasteurized, too.

Sometimes you can also find pasteurized eggs, too.

None of these work really well as meringue, as they just don't get as fluffy as un-pasteurized eggs, but they work fine for other cooking and baking.

gosh darn it, I almost said Johnny-Jump-Up. I missed my chance to be brilliant!

In our house, we call them Johnny-Jump-Ons, because my husband was digging near where I had planted them one year, and he kept hopping off the shovel right on to the flowers! And he even likes those flowers! Good thing he's such a good guy!
